Coming home today, around 3 pm, we saw the Pacheco Fire. We had split from the 152 WB to the 156 WB, which was a good thing, as WB 152 was closed due to the fire.
Here is a shot of it:
Last word was air attack was canceled at 4:30 pm, but units on stand-by.
I have also been following the Knight Fire along the Stanislaus River, north of Twain Harte. (750 acres, 0% contained as of 7 pm 7/28/09.) The Monterey Hotshots were just assigned to this fire this afternoon. I am following it because I am interested, and there is a connection to Monterey County but, I will not generally be posting about it.
